I am the Mother of 3 Son’s and 1 Daughter. We have owned our own business since 1981.
In 2003 my son Bret showed his father and I a lump on his right nipple. Immediately I as a women thought to myself could that be what they tell us women to look for in our breast!
At the time we had no health insurance and Bret was a Junior in High School as wrestler and football player. Bob and I were on the Booster club and we had just started a physical night so the students who had no insurance could get the physicals done for $25.
It was going to be run my parents who had their own students at the high school.
So that is when I told Bret let’s have them check it. Over 7 Drs. Looked at the lump and told him it was calcium he was becoming a man. For 7 years thru college every doctor told us them same. Until in 2010 one doctor finally sent him for a sonogram!
Today myself, Bret, Cheri Ambrose, Bob Miller work this 24/7. My hashtag is #TogetherWeWillChangetheWORLD that #MenHaveBreastsToo and sadly to say every week we are finding Men from all over the World.
When faced with the words, 'You have breast cancer,' no man will feel alone ever again.
